For those of you who are terrified of the dentist, you are not alone. It doesn’t help that my first visit to the dentist was far too late in life….. *cringes* 24. By then the damage was done. A broken tooth, four wisdom teeth that need extracting and 9 cavities that needed filled. We won’t go into WHY I didn’t go to the dentist before this age, but it was the way it was. The way it was, was not a good idea. Not. Good. At. All. Also, am I the only one who thinks going to the dentist is a whole lot like being abducted by aliens?
